Is Probiotic Good for Gastritis?
Gastritis is the inflammation of the lining of the stomach and may be acute or chronic. Gastritis is mainly caused by a bacterium known as helicobacter pylori. Other factors may cause gastritis such as drinking corrosive substances, alcohol abuse, long-term use of non-steroidal non-inflammatory drugs and autoimmune diseases. Probiotics are live microorganisms similar to micro organisms found in the human gut that may be beneficial in suppressing the growth of helicobacter pylori, hence preventing gastritis, according to the MedlinePlus.
